Carl Robinson is considering a return to England when his contract with MLS club Toronto expires in the coming weeks.
Yesterday’s 2-0 defeat away to San Jose Earthquakes was Toronto’s last game of the season and the 32-year-old is free to talk to clubs on both sides of the Atlantic.
And the experienced Welsh international and former Wolves midfielder has hinted that he will consider coming back to Britain with his wife and young family from their home in Ontario.
“I love this place and you’ll see that I play with a smile on my face,” he said in an interview with CBSSports.ca
“I enjoy it here, my family loves it here, but I have to do what’s right for my family. It’s not just about an individual decision or selfish decision from me – it’s a family decision.
“I’m going to sit down and speak to them, see what they want to do and weigh up my options. There are options out there, like there are for most players.
“It was a big decision when I came over here two years ago and it was the right decision because I have my hunger for the game back. I was really unhappy. Now there’s another big decision I have to make.”
Robinson, who says he has had enquiries from England, has played 27 games in the 2008 campaign and been Toronto’s most consistent player, firmly establishing himself as one of the top holding midfielders in the league.
He has been a team-mate of another former Molineux midfielder Rohan Ricketts and of ex-Albion striker Danny Dichio.
Ricketts may have struggled for goals in his time in the West Midlands but scored twice in the recent victory over Chicago Fire.
